Free Images and new Blogshop Listings

I haven't really created anything in the last week or so. I've just been mulling over a few things, planning things ( great at planning, I am, not so good at actually doing ), and buying a few bits and pieces for the mulled over projects, lol. I so want to make a couple of the things the lovely Karla and Beth have come up with so far in the Romantic White Christmas workshop, especially a really gorgeous and dead simple Christmas Tree ornament, which I want to make into a garland for the fireplace. If you haven't heard about this online workshop yet, have a look HERE. You can still join in.

Well, the long and short of it is, I haven't really got much to show, so I have scanned in a few more images for you. The first three images are late Victorian Christmas cards, they came out of a Victorian scrap book. Rather unusual in that they don't show Nativity scenes, Santas, snowy scenes, angels, or Christmas trees with heaps of presents, but I love them -


This gorgeous writing is from a very old German postcard -


And two beautiful young French ladies -


When I took the last one out of the scanner, I realised how very pretty the writing on the back of the card was. So I scanned that in as well. I think it will make a great background -


There you go. I hope you can use some of the images in your projects.

I have also listed some more antique French ticking fabric packs in the blogshop, as well as some nice fat ephemera packs -

I have 4 packs of the fabulous 'neutrals', shades of creams, white and grey -


and these vintage ephemera packs, a mixture of French and English pieces -


If you fancy a look, you can find the blogshop HERE.

I am off to print out the template for the Christmas Tree garland which I determined to make over the weekend and get everything ready for an early start tomorrow. Thats hopeful thinking, lol. Ah well, we'll see how it goes.

Until the next time, toodlepip xxx
